Intentional Cooking (I may need a ruling from Carolyn on this - does it count if what you're making has no nutritionally redeeming value?)

A couple of recipes I picked up from the GS camping weekend - Yummy!

M & M Pretzels

1 bag Square Pretzels (woven pattern) (Bulk Foods)
1 Bag of M & M’s
1-2 lbs. Dark, White, or Milk Chocolate wafers (Bulk Foods)

Put square pretzels on cookie sheet and then add chocolate wafers on top. Bake in oven at 200’ for 5 minutes. Take out of oven and put M & M’s on top. Refrigerate or put in cool area. Ready to package or eat.

Muddy Buddies

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
½ cup peanut butter
¼ cup butter
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
9 cups wheat, rice, corn, or favorite chex cereal
1 ½ cup confectionary sugar

Pour cereals into large bowl, set aside.

In 1 quart microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until smooth. Stir mixture and add vanilla.

Pour chocolate mixture over cereals, stirring until all pieces are evenly coated. Pour cereal mixture into a large resealable bag or bowl with lid and add confectionary sugar. Seal securely and shake until all pieces are well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool.
